About Osage 关于奥沙
“I believe we all have a social responsibility for promoting the arts in our communities, whether it be through a commercial or non-commercial platform is irrelevant.” – Agnes Lin
The Osage group comprises various companies with a single vision of promoting challenging artistic development and discourse from this region for the artists, the public and future generations.
Osage Art Foundation - established in 2004, is a registered non-profit charity devoted to building creative communities, promoting cultural cooperation and developing creative capacity. OAF raises funds to provide strategic funding and in-kind support for multiple art projects ranging from early childhood arts education workshops to controversial thought-provoking performances and installations, providing an invaluable platform for many under-represented artists in the region.
Osage Gallery - opened in 2004 with a mission to exhibit and promote international and Asian contemporary visual arts. Through its curatorially-driven exhibitions, publications and research programmes, Osage Gallery explores the diverse and complex artistic relationships between the different regions of Asia and between Asia and other parts of the world. Working with international artists, curators and critics, Osage has organised major group and thematic exhibitions as well as solo exhibitions featuring some of the most significant current and emerging artists in Asia, such as Sun Yuan & Peng Yu and Shen Shaomin (China), Donna Ong (Singapore), Lee Kit, Wilson Shieh and Kingsley Ng (Hong Kong), Louie Cordero and Maria Taniguchi (Philippines), Nipan Oranniwesna (Thailand) and Tintin Wulia (Indonesia).
Osage Art Consultancy was established in 2009 and has quickly developed a strong reputation in providing leading hospitality and commercial spaces with exceptional contemporary art and media – drawing from the Osage Group’s dynamic relationships with some of the most exciting artists across the globe. The commercial arms of the Osage Group along with the Hong Kong government and philanthropic individuals and institutions help fund the work of the Osage Art Foundation.
